Material Safety Data Sheet
Routes of Exposure Inhalation, Ingestion, skin and eyes.
Acute Health Hazards
Inhalation: Minimal respiratory tract irritation may occur with exposure
to large amounts of dust.
Ingestion: Low acute toxicity. Ingestion is a minor route of entry for
intended use of this product.
Skin: Unlikely to cause skin irritation.
Eyes: May cause transient slight irritation.
Chronic Health Hazards Prolonged inhalation of excessive amounts of any dust
may cause lung damage. Use of this product as intended
does not result in inhalation of excessive amounts of dust.
Carcinogenicity Refer to section 11.

4.0 First Aid Measures

Inhalation: Move person to fresh air immediately. If symptoms

occur, consult a physician.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water. Drink one to two glasses of
water. If symptoms occur, consult a physician
Skin: Wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and
water. If irritation persists, consult a physician.
Eyes: Do not rub eyes. Immediately flush with large
amounts of clean, lukewarm water (low pressure) for
at least 5 minutes or until particles are removed. If
irritation persists, consult a physician.

5.0 Fire Fighting Measures

Extinguishing media CO2, water, dry chemical

Unsuitable Extinguishing None known
Special Firefighting None
Unusual fire and explosion Like most organic material in powder form, toner can
hazards form explosive dust-air mixtures when finely
dispersed in air.
Auto-ignition temperature Not available
Flashpoint (method) Not applicable
Hazardous Combustion CO2, CO

Material Safety Data Sheet
6.0 Accidental release measures

Spill or leak procedures Avoid breathing dust. Minimize the release of

particles. Slowly sweep the material into a bag or
other sealed container. Clean remainder with a
damp cloth or vacuum cleaner. If a vacuum is used,
the motor must be rated as dust explosion-proof.
Fine powder can form explosive dust-air mixtures.
Dispose of waste toner in accordance with local
Environmental precautions Do not discharge into drains (See also Section 13,
Disposal Considerations).

7.0 Handling and Storage

Advise on safe handling and Keep material out of reach of children. Avoid
protection against fire inhalation of dust and contact with eyes. Use with
adequate ventilation. Keep away from excessive
heat, sparks, and open flames.
Requirements for storage Keep out of the reach of children. Keep container
rooms and advise on closed and store at room temperature. Keep away
storage compatibility from strong oxidizers.
